No problems after that.


That is one of the reasons I started this to see if I need to apply Eternabond tape tot he front seam as well as the back. I have a roll that I haven't used yet which would just about do both front and back.

Did you remove any of the sealant before putting the tape on or did you just go over existing?

It was 100-degrees outside when I did it, so I just "kinda" cleaned up the old stuff, and cleaned the roof in the whole area with Keytone. Reason being, that I was using 6", and didn't have to worry about what was going on waay under it, just on the edges. Used a 2" wallpaper roller, which was all I could find at the time.

Worked well, but not pretty, since I dropped one end before I had a chance to line it up.

No second chances at 100+!

Still worked well.

Keytone? I figure its a cleaner but sorry I haven't heard of that stuff.

I'm planning to do mine really soon. I already have the special heavy roller from a few years ago using this stuff. Yes no second chances.

Fortunately I haven't had any leaks where water has gotten inside. I'm still dealing with the windshield caulk breaking away from the rubber. I notice on newer units the rubber seal is all there is. I get water somewhere along the top and it drips out of the gap in the caulk at the bottom. No evidence of any water getting in the coach.

I think ketone is a solvent and may be the same as acetone. I used 4" wide eternabond(sp?) to fix a leak in the front and had to have a pro replace with 6" wide. I either didn't clean the area well enough or 4" is not wide enough.

I currently have a 2008 Winnebago Outlook, never any leaks. 5 YEARS and 67,450 miles, we travel all the time.

We just signed (7-6-13) a contract on 2013 FR GT 351 DSF.
I am reading about so many problems
LEAKS
CEILING
SIDE WALLS SEPERATION

It sounds like I just purchased ONE BIG PROBLEM. I am very concerned now that I have read all of the problems

Just remember you're seeing a very small cross section of owners. I've owned 3 other mfgr's and all had similar problems. Remember most of them are from auxilliary equipment funished by global vendors. Most folks aren't on the forums and just fix em. Too bad, if they came here it would be easier to correct. Enjoy your new unit! If you need help, grt it here fast!
